‘Twas Christmas

As expected, our Christmas was low-key, spent with “kin folk” and kitties.  Here are a few pictures from the day:

Sundae proves that it isn’t just children who are bright-eyed on Christmas morning.

After breakfast at our house with Marshall, Motor Man and I stopped at the shop to see what Santa brought Gypsy.

A crinkle tunnel? For me? But I think I like that squeaky mouse-on-the fishing-pole toy over there better.

Later, a visit with my sister, June and niece, Barb.  June’s kitty, BJ, joined us for a photo. (Actually, we joined her for the photo.)

We had a few minutes to catch our breath later in the afternoon, then off to dinner with Motor Man’s family.

Marshall visited again that evening for our gift exchange and annual Christmas family photo, of which Sundae wanted no part.

Although we didn’t travel far to see everyone, we stayed busy, and by the end of the day, Sundae wasn’t the only one looking tired.

How would you describe your Christmas day? Quiet and relaxing?  Fun, but hectic?  Were you plumb-tuckered out by evening?

  1. As you know, our Christmas was quiet. We sure enjoyed seeing you and JR!

  2. Loved all the pictures. Now where will Sundae spend her time when the tree is gone?

  3. Our Christmas was quiet and relaxing. Love Gypsy’s white feeties. Hope she learns about how fun the crinkle tunnel is. We gave one to our hoomin great nephew.. his Dad loved it 😀 Sundae looks very mellow in the last photo.

  4. Our Christmas day was laid back and casual—not a lot of hoopla or surprises but it was perfect. We made a nice meal and shared a lot of fun time together and that is all that mattered to me. Loved your pictures.

  5. Quiet, Cooking, and then…………….Family!!! Fun! Glad you got to enjoy your family too.

  6. Our Christmas day was busy with friends, a BIG turkey dinner, games afterwards then when we finally sat down and relaxed – we noticed just how TIRING the day had been. But it was all good – and fun! Glad you enjoyed your Christmas too………


  7. Christmas Day was definitely low key and relaxing since we had our family Christmas earlier this month. We traveled to middle daughter’s, went to candlelight service with them at their church on Christmas Eve. Then since son-in-law had to make his rounds at the hospital early on Christmas Day, we just relaxed with daughter and watched Christmas movies (and sang along with all the songs in White Christmas).

  8. Christmas to me is all about family and friends getting together. Looks like you did just that! Well, in TN it was just David and I but we did bring our furry family with us. Next year hopefully we will have the kids for Christmas again!

  9. Aw, Sundae is so cute! Yes, we were tuckered out by evening also. It was early to bed for us! 🙂 Ellie (and husband)

  10. It was a good day – all around! ; a little bustle mixed in with the laid-back!

    Happy New Year to you and yours. Dor

  17. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas. I love that Sundae and Gypsy had a fabulous Christmas. They’ve been good all year and certainly deserve the fun.

  18. Sundae is just so cute. – It’s been a pleasure viewing your blog this past year. I look forward to sharing with you in 2015. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year.

    Unfortunately, Chuck and I were both down with the flu. First no Christmas in our house in 39 years, but thankful we are both better.
